Both the '81 & '80 Uptown runs are stand-outs. I like the Rooster from both, which I normally think of as a refreshment break opportunity. Sorry anti-sliders, but sometimes the sublime nature of it fits the application & works for me.

Upon further listening one Brent Mydland, the house organist does rip-it-up on Little Red Rooster and an appropriate second set Ship Of Fools is so eloquently read.

Brent is damn lost in this version, I think he loses his place...Garcia is a bit sloppy, as well, I just finished the Uptown stand as part of the 81 year in review, very hit or miss...

check out 12-30-1981 for the best version of the year, Brent smokes, Weir plays a tight, lucid slide and Garcia rips it up big time, one of his best blues solos out there, very in the pocket
